THOMASVILLE, GA, Feb. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Sports Venues of Florida, Inc. (OTCMKTS: BTHR) (“Sports Venues of Florida”, “BTHR”, or the “Company”), an emerging leader in the youth sports, family sports entertainment, and eSports markets, has had a week of debt reduction and expansion of its player base and finalization of its GGToor.com portal.
This had been an incredibly productive week with the success of our first World of Tanks event. Over 250 teams and 1100 players participated in the World of Tanks event and pre-registration for next week’s POKEMON TCG ONLINE with a prize pool of $3,000 is growing rapidly. We are growing a robust fan audience through technology that engages a younger demographic in a way that we are not seeing in traditional sports, or any other content producer for that matter.
Management discovered with this week’s new event we are engaging players from a cross universe of games. This is a welcomed change in our demographics of tournaments past where we only attracted players whose skillset was specifically game specific. As we grow our base, we want to draw the attention of sponsors and it seems over the past couple of tournaments we are beginning to draw the attention of sponsors. Big and small name brands see eSports as the perfect opportunity to reach the traditionally inaccessible male aged 18–35 target market. While eSports has been exploding, there is still some hesitation outside the ecosystem about what eSports even is or how benefiting sponsors. We aim to turn their hesitation into revenue.
The lack of education has been a roadblock for some sponsors, parents, and the traditional sports industry. Professionalism has just started being raised as an issue within the eSports ecosystem. Players — win or lose — have just spent much of their career in front of a computer, and not in front of a crowd. Establishing training programs and education around their new status as role models, and clarity about the consequences for unprofessional behavior is a huge opportunity for all the eSports ecosystems.
Shadow Gaming intends on being part of the solution by creating development pathways and structured eSports programs. Having a larger participation base will increase the level of play and continue to enhance the fan experience across all eSports. In the coming months, we will be working on a structure training guidelines and training program to help grow our event organizer and our player base.
Sports Venues has had tremendous success this week thanks to improved market support. The Company was able to raise cash from sales of its Regulation A offering from a worst case of $0.025 per share to $0.08 per share. This has been a fantastic benefit to the Company and to existing shareholders. Less dilution equates to a stronger market for our stock. Raising capital at higher prices has allowed us to payoff $150,000 worth of convertible notes in cash this week and payoff the remaining balance of $25,000 from a promissory note from a private investor who helped the Company tremendously at the very beginning of its relaunch into the eSports business.
Anytime we can reduce debt, especially convertible debt, and raise capital at substantially higher stock prices than we planned equate to a stronger market for our securities and a balance sheet that improves with each reporting period. It has been a great week thanks to the support of investors who have followed the progress of the Company and purchased stock. More importantly, more investors are holding than those selling. There is no real secret to an increased stock price. If we attract more buyers than sellers the price will continue to rise. If we have more sellers than buyers, the price will go down. We express our sincere thanks to the market makers, investors, individuals who for the past week have graciously supported our Company. We are working extremely hard to have this positive trend continue.
